"Endocrine Surgery the doctor and Team"

About: Northampton General Hospital (Acute)

I would like to say thank you to the doctor and team for their work they did on me on the 25th of January 2016 to remove my left lobe of thyroid. I am very grateful for the doctor's honesty and openess and allowance the doctor gives for a patient to make a decision that is well informed. As an NHS worker myself, I am aware of the pressures out there but the doctor makes it effortless. Right through from first consultation to my surgery, I was always well informed and well respected.

Thank you.

Thank you to the nurses on Head and Neck ward who looked after me post surgery. All I can remind them is to introduce themselves as most of them seemed to foget. The healthcare assistant was lovely and made everything much easier. Some I had to ask for their names. It makes a difference when they do.

I am sure they will agree too.
